It was such a pleasure to work with Chelsea leading up to our special day, always incredibly calm! Chelsea, I want to thank you for being so understanding every time I called with a seemingly annoying question. You were always so patient and set my mind at ease. It never seemed to bother you. But all that doesn’t compare to your services you provided for the day of the wedding. You and your assistants didn’t a miss a beat. Everything was taken care of without us having to worry on the day. Everything looked incredible, exactly as per my expectations! For any bride to be, I would definitely advise them to contact you for their special day.

As any bride would, I met with and conversed with numerous suppliers while trying to conceptualise what my big day would look like. Without fail, the one name that came up as consistently as the sun rises was “CHELSEA”.  Chelsea has a magical way of translating what you envision into reality. She took various concepts, thrashed out the practicalities and provided alternatives that not only made my wedding day phenomenal but one for the record books.

Never have I met someone so organized, efficient and insanely calm. An absolute Gem - her warm smile, meticulous attention to detail and her deep seeded passion for what she does reassured me that I was in the best hands the Western Cape has to offer.

My wedding day was nothing short of perfect. Chelsea was professional and paid close attention to me as the bride. I never felt that I could not trust her to take control of the planning and she completely understood my expectations and met every single one of them. I never had to worry about when or if a vendor would arrive as Chelsea took care of it all. I enjoyed my wedding to the full from beginning to end and I truly believe that if I did not have Chelsea as my Coordinator I would not have been able to be as relaxed and carefree and soak up every moment of my Wedding day.
Thank you, Warren-Stone Events, for everything you are amazing!

It was an incredible experience working with Chelsea as our wedding planner. We are based in Johannesburg and chose to get married in Cape Town.


We had to plan our wedding for 300 guests from afar and it was essentially a stress free experience from the day we secured our wedding venue. It was uplifting to find that most of our concerns were taken care of, before these were even raised.


We were amazed at Chelsea’s detailed itinerary in the days leading up to the wedding. Chelsea’s impeccable skill and attention detail ensured that everything was exquisite, our wedding day was truly special and the delivery was way beyond our expectations. All we had to do was make sure we looked stunning for the wedding!

We are based in the UK and had to organise our wedding from abroad. It quickly became clear that we needed someone on the ground and Chelsea became involved. What a pleasure it was from that day on! 

We had many of our guests commenting on how lovely our wedding was and asking if it had been hard to organise from overseas. The answer was no; Chelsea did all the work. We gave her a budget and only the broadest idea of what we wanted and she ran with it. The end result was absolutely stunning and something way beyond our expectations. 

With Chelsea, we felt calm, and secure and knew that she was completely in control. All together we found working with Chelsea a relaxing and hugely rewarding experience.

Chelsea has been very hands on with our wedding since day one. She has made myself and Wihan feel as if our wedding is just as important to her as it is to us. She is versatile when it comes to our personal taste, style and preference and adapts ll to creating our perfect day. She has a fine eye for detail and can easily put one’s vision into life and even add that extra touch.


She has the ability to put the perfect service providers into place for each specification that we desired. She has opened my eyes to endless possibilities when it comes to creating a bespoke wedding. I am sure that I will easily be able to spot a, “Warren Stone Wedding!"

Chelsea, thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts.We couldn't have better things to say about working with you and your marvelous team. Throughout the planning process you were attentive, organized and resourceful.You helped to alleviate any additional stress leading up to the wedding by providing helpful tips and resources that kept Thanasi and I on track for our big day.


On our wedding day, we knew we had absolutely nothing to stress about because Chelsea and her team were on it. Every little detail, every step of the way. We couldn't have asked for a better planner.

- Jade and Thanasi


We are one of the few couples who wanted to have their wedding in a special place. As my husband was born in Johannesburg, we thought SA is the perfect opportunity.


We quickly realized that it would be hard to organize a perfect wedding from the Netherlands. It is so so far away... So we contacted Chelsea and it quickly became clear, she knows what she's doing. She is professional, courteous, open and tailors everything to the customer, she has mastered the art of wedding planning! We had an idea of how everything should look and most importantly, how it should work. Chelsea has turned our thoughts and desires into reality. We appreciate being able to work together with a person like Chelsea, with a basis of trust and perfection to detail at the same time. Thank you for all your time and effort!

Chelsea Warren-Stone! Absolutely exquisite. We had less than 1 year to plan. She is entirely efficient, meticulous and innovative. No request had ever been unresponsive or inaccurate. On the day of my Wedding at 06h30 she called.. “Good Morning my Beautiful Bride”…”have you seen the weather” before I could open both eyes and grasp for air she initialised her sentiment “I have a plan B” and she surely did. Her passion and sincerity is true and entrusting. Her urgency and attention to detail is truly out of this world. Chelsea was my secret maid of Honour, who took responsibility and actioned freely with no hesitation or compromise and had my best interest at heart till the last moment. She applied her plan B and I can honestly say my idea of perfect had been GOD ordained and Chelsea had been my blessing. Thank you for being the super star that you are, every Bride & Groom of whom is privileged enough to work with you ; should be ready with anticipation for the best experience one’s day and new life beginning could ever imagine. To All the Brides reading this, I dare you to have a coffee with this lady – She will win your heart!


We got married in March 2017 at the beautiful Cavalli Estate in Stellenbosch and we were so blessed to have Chelsea as our coordinator. Things went so well and ran smoothly on the day and on the days leading up to our wedding. I really couldn’t have asked for someone better to hold my hand through the process.


There were bumps along the way but we hardly felt them as Chelsea already had back up plans before we could even think of panicking. The service was professional and only the best was recommended and supplied through Chelsea. 


We know any couple who chooses Chelsea to coordinate their wedding will have an exquisite one.


Chelsea, our guardian angel. You are simply the best. Craig & I cannot thank you enough for making our special day beyond perfect. Your professionalism, attention to detail and willingness to go the extra mile made our day better than we could have ever imagined. The planning process was effortless, it felt as though I was planning my wedding with my best friend, bouncing all kinds of ideas off Chelsea and receiving an enthusiastic timely response every time.


I would recommend Chelsea to everyone I know as I have all my faith and trust in her abilities. She is just amazing to say the least. Thank you once again Chelsea for everything you did for us, we absolutely LOVED our wedding day!


Planning a wedding can be overwhelming so hiring a wedding coordinator and specifically Chelsea, was the best decision we ever made. From the beginning she shared our vision and made it a very stress-free and exciting process for us. Due to unfortunate family circumstances we had to move our wedding out by a year, after all the bookings with service providers had been confirmed. During this difficult time Chelsea handled the process with great kindness and understanding, re-organising everything with a smile. Chelsea has an array of contacts and good relationships with key players and suppliers in the industry which made bringing all the special elements together a seamless experience. Chelsea’s planning was meticulous with a to-the-minute timeline of the day as well as the days leading up to and the break down after the function. We would highly recommend Chelsea. After our special day, we walked away with not only wonderful memories of an extraordinary event, but also with a friend.


The journey started a year before the wedding day and words cannot do justice to describe how valuable Chelsea was through the entire process. From the start Chelsea was very warm, open and friendly; and this only eased the concerns of organizing a wedding in a country that neither my husband nor I lived in. She took a very personal and genuine interest in exactly what we wanted then look to make that not only a reality but practical too.


Her vast network of local suppliers and contacts ensured that she can provide a variety of cost-based options and based on our priorities she was able to provide what we wanted on our wedding day. A cherished contributor to our wedding who we would recommend. A year has passed and only fond memories fill our hearts and for that Chelsea we would like to thank you.


We had a wonderful evening and despite the weather, everything went smoothly. Thank heavens for the generator! All the guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The venue looked beautiful! The caterer was excellent!


We were happy with the planning process throughout. The only pity is that the evening was over to quickly! I just want to thank you for your kindness and arrangements.


We got married 2 years ago. We initially decided to organize our own wedding arrangements . We wanted a WOW wedding on our special day. After delving into what it takes to organize a wedding and all the stress that goes with it,  we realized that we might be divorced before we get married. We decided to look around for a wedding organizer who would ensure that our wedding was a major success and that we could simply enjoy our day without worrying. After approaching numerous wedding co ordinators, we stumbled across Chelsea. From the moment we  sat down with her we realized that she had that X factor that would ensure that our wedding day was the best. Nothing was a problem for her . She listened to us and tailored the wedding plan to meet our desires. The “ Chelsea Wedding Clock” ran like a Swiss watch, it did not skip a beat. Everything was perfectly planned and on time. On the day of the wedding she was ever present , lurking in the background, ensuring that everything went to plan and that no one bugged us. Her staff were excellently trained and took instructions from her. We really felt like royalty.  Not once were we bugged on any issues during and after our wedding. We can HIGHLY recommend Chelsea to anyone seeking a professionally, well run, hassle free wedding.


We were highly satisfied with the planning process. We cannot imagine that we were the easiest of clients to coordinate an international wedding in just three months! Chelsea is very patient, hands on, proactive and with us 150% of the way. Everything went off without a hitch. We had a bout of bad weather and Chelsea quickly made an arrangement to accommodate high winds and entertain guests while the bride was late. We were very pleased to be able to use the kosher caterer of our choice – they was great!


Chelsea was our planner and shining star, she really pulled off an amazing wedding in such little time with no compromise. We need to note too that she was notably great on the day off, checking in on us, making sure we were up to speed on everything and keeping our nerves at bay. We would definitely use her for our 3rd wedding! HAHAHA.


Chelsea was extremely helpful especially because I was not physically in South Africa.


We dealt with Chelsea throughout and she was very professional and helped us as best she could. She was very prompt in responding to our requests and always friendly and sincere.


Jean and I really enjoyed working with Chelsea. She was creative and a pleasure to work with throughout the wedding planning process. The wedding was so beautiful and the event seamless.


The best thing was knowing that we had nothing to worry about at all and could just enjoy the day! I would recommend Chelsea to any of my friends. 


Our guests to this day say that our wedding although small and intimate was up there with the best weddings they have attended.


Chelsea was always available, friendly, polite and ready to answer and attend to any questions and requests that I had. Her assistant Melissa was equally competent.


Anybody who knows me, knows that I am a control freak and perfectionist, so to relinquish control on such an important day was very difficult to say the least.  Having said that, I could not have done it without Chelsea by my side. She steered us through the entire process with ease and finesse. She ended up coordinating our wedding from start to finish.


She made the entire process effortless and stress free.  We had a guest list of 200 people plus ranging from different back grounds to different cultures all having different requirements and nothing was ever too much of an effort to accommodate us or our guests. We literally had to rock up on the day and were able to be a guest at our own wedding. If there was anything that went wrong, we were not aware of it as she handled everything behind the scenes. To this day we still receive so many compliments about our wedding, and it was all thanks to Chelsea and her team.
